Recaps are a little late due to my shitty router not letting my computer onto the internet for an hour.

This is a link to Jonathan Coulton's greatest hits album on Spotify (Europe only). You're welcome. Unlike SOME ARTISTS he hasn't pulled his music from the service. Plus he's totally better than those jumped up pricks.

I also want to put an idea to you, with Dtoid officially down to just 1 podcast and the community podcasts trickled down to 1 as well (it's a little sad when Failcast is the last man standing) would anyone here be interested in a DtoidUK podcast?

Also it's totally my birthday on Monday. I'll be 21, scary thought.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Overcoming Fear

We’ve all been there. A game presents us with a moment or situation that fills us with dread. It could be the inexorable approach of a supernatural menace or looking down from the top of an impossibly tall building. Games will play on your fears and push you. But how do you overcome and prevail?

In honor of the ween of hallow and the month of October, the Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “overcoming your fears in video games.” How did you face the digital demons and pixel poltergeists? Did climbing in Assassin’s Creed make you feel dizzy? Or do underground levels make you feel like you can’t breathe? Everyone has this moment in gaming. You can scoff at the mirror room in Silent Hill 3 but break out into a cold sweat if you see a clown. So what do you do to get past this? Have any tricks of the trade or anecdotes that you’ve picked up along the way? We want to hear about it.

Take us to your moment and how you dealt with that fear. Let us see into your heart and reach out to touch the quiet truth of your words. All you have to do is write your story in the Cblogs and format the title as “Overcoming Fear: [your blog title here].” It's delightfully easy. You may even find your story promoted to the Front Page. That’s always a treat.

You’ve overcome this fear. You have this story, this moment. Why not share it with us? Maybe your story can help someone else overcome their fear.
